for commander of u.s. european command and top nato general remains on hold. india has executed the last surviving attacker from the 2008 terror attack that killed 166 people. mohammed ajmal kasab was hanged in secret early today at a jail in pune. public celebrations broke out across the country as news spread of his execution. kasab was part of a pakistani- based squad of militants who carried out the three-day-long siege on india's financial capital. they targeted key sites like luxury hotels and a jewish center. newly released documents show a government agency took 684 days to warn of earlier problems at a pharmacy linked to the meningitis outbreak. the food and drug administration issued a warning letter over the massachusetts lab in 2007 but it took nearly 18 months longer than an average response. the f.d.a. acknowledged there had been a delay but said it was because of the agency's limited, unclear authority. 34 people in the u.s. have died after receiving tainted pain- killing injections from the massachusetts based lab. congressman jesse jackson junior-- a democrat from illino

disruptions that could have justified such a big increase. >> did china and india suddenly have gigantic needs for new oil products in a single day? no--everybody agrees supply-demand could not drive the price up $25, which was a record increase in the price of oil. the price of oil went from somewhere in the $60s to $147 in less than a year. and we were being told on that run-up, "it's supply-demand, supply-demand, supply-demand." >> a report out of mit analyzing world oil production and consumption also concluded that the basic fundamentals of supply and demand could not have been responsible for the 2008 run-up in oil prices. and michael masters says the u.s. department of energy's own statistics show that if the markets had been working properly, the price of oil should have been going down, not up. >> from quarter four of '07 until the second quarter of '08, the e.i.a.--the energy information administration-- said that supply went up. worldwide supply went up, and worldwide demand went down. so you have supply going up and demand going down, which generally means that price is going down.

with the world's largest population after china and india. i first met him in 2008 at facebook's old graffitied building in downtown palo alto. the company has since decamped to giant hangars nearby to accommodate their explosive growth. the graffiti is largely gone, except for one word you just can't miss. i see "hack" everywhere. >> mm-hmm. >> hack. it has a negative connotation, doesn't it? >> when we say "hacker," there's this whole definition that engineers have for themselves, where it's very much a compliment when you call someone a hacker, where "to hack something" means to build something very quickly, right? in one night, you can sit down and you could churn out a lot of code, and at the end, you have a product. >> which is what he expects from his 500 engineers. as we walked through, we got a sense of high-level competition, whether it's writing code into the night or taking breaks to play speed chess. it's a constant game of one-upsmanship. you have hack-athons. >> yeah, and hack-athons are these things where just all of the facebook engineers get together and stay up all night buil

water for 1 1/2 billion people, mostly in south america, china, and india. >> in the medium term-- let's say, depending on the size of the glacier, 30 years, just a few decades-- the glacier will start to waste away in such a degree that you will see the runoff, the glacial melt coming from that glacier starting to decline. >> and these cities around the world will be starved for water. >> exactly, so that's a major issue. and we see now the first impacts. >> we wanted to see the evidence of warming nearer the bottom of the world, so we set sail ast city south, ushuaia, argentina, on a two-day voyage to antarctica. it's more than 1,000 miles from glacier o'higgins in patagonia and across the drake passage to the antarctic peninsula. here, we found there's green where the white used to be. on the coast in summer, there's grass where the scientists used to ski. this is paradise cove. it's home to fur seals, lazy elephant seals, and the chinstrap penguin. there's the chin strap right there, right under the eye. american biologists sue and wayne trivelpiece were the first to discover troub

with the five billion smart phones. i was in india recently -- >> rose: there's only 7.3 billion people in the world. >> we're so depende on it and it's so easy. think about how it changes everything. it's always in your hand: and as marc andreessen said to you, it's a computer in your pocket. so if you want to search your internet, do e-mail, make a phone call, look up something you want to watch a video, play a game, it's in your hand. and your hand could be a smart phone, a tablet, but it's portable and it follows you everywhere. it just changes everything. then the questions become how to monetize that. can you -- we know how to do a t.v. ad in television, right? we know how to do an ad in a movie theater when you go in and you sit there and when's the movie going to start. but it's primitive how you're going to do an ad on mobile. and that's something that everyone is experimenting with. >> rose: you know what else is exciting about all of this? it's how it's changing our world beyond miniaturization it's how it's changing our world and all the questions that gives expression to ab

expensive to live in places like india where the stars in the movie end up gone. i am here today to talk about an alternative to either euthanasia or outsourcing, what soon will be a quarter of the population, and argue that the solution to much ails us as individuals in a society lays in rethinking the map of life, the map of life that was in many ways set up in three score and 10, which seems like a longer lives of the past century but is inadequate to the five score lifespans that more and more people will be living in the 21st century. half the kids born since 2000 the developed world are projected to see their 100th birthday so we can't just fold, spindle, made late stretch and extend this life course that really was set up for a very different arc of life to one that is really, has an extra decibel point, an extra zero to it. so i think what is happening, to really cut to the essence of what i'm saying today is that the nature of life is under every bed a radical transformation as the numbers are. all those numbers that we are so familiar with and that period that has been characte

and germany and india and if we're going to have an american century we cannot come in second place to those countries in technology of the future. and i think that played an important role. there was a sense that the obama vision was one that they thought better suited this moment in our country's history. and there is no question on social issues whether it's women's healthcare or immigration. there was asset of issues that for younger voters was important to think about the kind of country and kind of president they wanted representing them. so on all those questions people wrestled carefully. i think that's why ultimately enough people in enough battleground states chose the president to continue this journey we're on. quickly in terms of demoggrafi. we don't know this for sure but we could be seeing different elections in on years and off years. the election in 2014 is going to be different than presidential lecktorts. and the comments i made were predicated on what we thought would happen in a presidential election. you had latinos turning out. the president won the cuban vote. the fir

face the accuser is in india or indonesia right now. they're using a mobile phone primarily to access the facebook. in a lot of cases, there is not an infrastructure of media and communications that you have in the u.s. and a lot of americans will meet you and say facebook is great for gossip and seeing what my friends are eating for lunch. but if you talk to somebody and the middle east, you would hear a different story which is that facebook is providing access to news, to people that had unique access to information that they were not able to get otherwise. you get a much more meaty story about what is the means to them. and that is awesome. >> but did you notice things that they actually behave differently with the system? like they share more pictures versus texts? or does basically everyone interact on facebook in the same way? >> one interesting thing is the cameras. a lot of people getting a smart phone for the first time will also have gotten their first camera. that is interesting to the about. if we are about to have four billion smart phones in 2017, that means four millio
